He is a recipient of KAIST's EWON Endowed Chair Professor and Soo-Young Lee Teaching Innovation Award. He also won best paper awards at SOSP'21 and USENIX ATC'17.
His main research topics are:
Rethinking system software with Rust Language.
Improving performance of emerging machine learning workloads by new system supports.
Redesigning distributed file systems with new technologies such as non-volatile memory and SmartNIC.
Improving reliability of operating systems: detecting the root cause of kernel concurrency bugs, finding new Kernel bugs.
Designing systems for resource disaggregation.
Co-designing hardware and software for secure services.
